“We recognise this as an impact on the community, particularly the vulnerable people and we want to respond as well as we can to that.
“So if you are aware of any and social behaviour on the estate, and please ring North Yorkshire Police, either on 101 or if it’s an emergency on 999
“You can report such incidents to North Yorkshire Police website, or you can ring Crimestoppers and report it that way.
“That’s so we get a better understanding of the situation and so we can respond accordingly.”
